just about an hour ago bp officially declared its blown out oil well at the bottom of the gulf of mexico effectively dead. last night crews finished the final test before making that announcement this morning. a drilling crew pumped some 74 barrels of cement into the well on friday. the task was designed to put pressure on the well to see if the cement plugged plugged the hole. as you recall, the disaster began back in april when a explosion killed 11 workers sank a drilling rig and led to the worst offshore oil spill in u.s. history. again they're saying today there's no further threat from that oil well. but, of course,ly sarks the impact lisa will be feltforof course -- of courselisa the impact will be felt for years. temperatures very mild southwesterly winds ahead of the front.
9:41am
final passage if you want to call it that 2 or 3:00 this afternoon. we're looking at very mild numbers. 64 in concord 67 in oakland. it starts a bit muggy and once again today it will feel that way before we get into more of a westerly northwesterly component this afternoon and into the week ahead. a chance of showers this morning, mainly in the north bay through the early afternoon. a little muggy, partly cloudy this afternoon, just a slight chance of showers from san francisco south and we'll look for dry and warmer weather next week. we'll loop the radar for you. you'll notice we have a few areas of rain that kind of have been drifting by. still some activity, maybe a thunderstorm if you're heading up to the sierra nevada but really closer to home around jenner, inverness and up toward highway 1 you're looking at wet weather. that should begin to thin out throughout the afternoon, but the actual area of low pressure is still offshore so we're still looking at a few areas of
9:42am
moisture wanting to rotate through the north bay but in the south bay we've got sunshine. it's clearing out in the east bay so the front is falling apart like it was forecasted and so we will be looking at just a slight chance of showers from san francisco south, mainly in the north bay through the early afternoon. as the clouds thin out we'll look at some sun but also muggy 60s and 70s, and a change in our weather pattern by tomorrow. so with the frontal passage, we'll see a slightly drier and cooler air mass settle on in tonight, and that sets the stage for a pretty nice week ahead. 72 today in santa clara, 74 in campbell peninsula, cloudy skies, and you'll see some sun from time to time. 71 in redwood city, maybe a light area of drizzle or rain along the coast. san francisco 67. you've stayed relatively dry but along the shore line it's been damp and still a threat to early afternoon. you can see that. north bay numbers you run the
9:43am
risk of keeping a shower with you throughout the afternoon. 73 in so know ma, 72 in nevada. the numbers haven't dropped off that much overnight. it stayed mild. with a bit of sun we'll see some of the cumulus clouds develop especially over the east bay. 68 in oakland. 70 in hayward. still a slightly unstable air mass with 74 in concord today. 75 in antioch and down by the monterey bay it's sunny now. salinas and monterey, 66 65 in gillbreth. a few raindrops in the north bay through the early afternoon. then cooler an drier for monday and tuesday. fall begins wednesday night and thursday friday saturday looks much, much warmer which we would normally be used to in september and october. maybe we'll get back on track mid-week. >> maybe it will last longer who knows? >> yeah. >> thanks lisa. well, one of the largest watershed restoration projects inments country is now underway
9:44am
here in northern california. ground was broken on the project last week along battle creek outside of redding. it's a rare viesh mental environmental success story. everyone seems to to agree on what's happened. >> reporter: for nearly a century dams along battle creek have turned water into power. they've also kept endangered chinook salmon and threatened steelhead from reaching prime breeding ground. >> the project has been in existence for many many decades. this uses spring fed water from volcanic rock in the southern cascades to produce hydroelectric power. >> reporter: five dams along battle creek are being torn down or modified to make way for fish. it's an ambitious project head yoad by the bureau of reclamation. marry marshal is the project manager. >> the battle creek restoration
9:45am
project will restore approximately 42 miles of habitat along with about 6 miles of habitat on tributaries to battle creek. >> the creek restoration comes after nearly a decade of wrangling over how to restore habitat. demolition began in july. >> we have three dam sites currently under construction. we're gearing up to start construction on a fourth site. >> this video shows the demolition of wild cat dam built in 1912. it's a welcome site sight to community activists who pushed hard for restoration of the watershed. >> this is really an opportunity for everybody involved, for the agencies for the people who live leer tohere tolive here to accomplish something that does matter. >> reporter: the project overall will cost $125 million to appreciate. it includes the addition of fish ladders and screens. >> one of the reasons that the restoration project is happening is that battle creek is a fairly
9:46am
pristine creek. >> reporter: many of the dams are in hard to reach places. that's created challenges for contractors. >> they're highly inaccessible. the only way to get to them is to walk down a rugged trail. >> reporter: this is a multi-agency project. the state department of fish and game the california wildlife conservation board cal trans, the u.s. fish and wildlife service and the bureau all teemed up with pg and e to get it going. at this point i believe it's a win-win situation. >> it's a phenomenal accomplishment. it's pretty hard to characterize it any other way. >> reporter: this fish hatchery is in the largest -- is the largest in the state. the young salmon raised here need to make their way to the river, on to the delta, and out to the pacific. everyone is hoping they will come back to battle creek to breed. >> we have to keep our fingers crossed with respect to the time
9:47am
line. it will probably take ten years to determine how well some of the restoration project is going. there will be annual monitoring. >> reporter: the changes don't come without consequences. at a time when the state is mandating utilities to produce more green power pg&e will be reducing the amount of ?rg energy produced. >> power that would have went on to the grid. the benefit of the project is we can have a viable hydro electric project and gain tremendous benefits for salmon and steelhead. >> the project is expected to be completed by 2014. dan ashley abc 7 news. up next a new safety regulation to protect children awaits the governor's signature. it would protect kids from important toy jewelry made from dangerous materialalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalal
